Gluten Free Irish Soda Bread
This soda bread is a traditional version of the Irish classic, but Gluten Free. Despite the updated ingredients, you will not lose the traditional soda bread flavor. You can bake it in a cast iron frying pan.
- 3 cup Gluten Free Flour Blend
- 2 tsp Xanthan Gum omit if your gluten free flour blend contains it
- 2 tsp Baking Powder
- 1 tsp Baking Soda
- 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
- 1/4 tsp Cream of Tartar
- 2 tbsp Xylitol Optional
- 3 tbsp Grass fed butter / Vegan butter (cold)
- 2 1/2 cup Coconut Buttermilk add 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar, wisk, and let sit for 10 minutes
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
- In a large bowl mix together the gluten free flour, xanthan gum, baking powder, baking soda, sea salt, cream of tartar, and xylitol.
- Grate the butter or blend into the dry mixture with a mixer on low. Add half of the buttermilk to the mixture and mix slowly. Then add the other half and mix slowly until just combined.
- Line a cast iron skillet with parchment paper. Transfer the dough into the skillet. Gently shape the dough into a 10 inch diameter disk. Use a sharp, wet knife to score the loaf by slicing a large "X" on top, cutting down about 2 1/2 inches into the dough.
- Place the skillet in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Increase the oven temperature to 400 degrees and bake until golden brown (about 15 minutes). Allow the loaf to rest for about 10 minutes in the skillet before removing it.
- Slice and enjoy!
